Original Creative Work
This piece of creative writing formed part of Barbara Campbell’s online durational performance 1001 nights Cast. From a prompt posted on the internet taken from the day’s news of events in the Middle east, each story (this was one of ten contributions I made between 2005 and 2008) could utilize up to 1001 words. This story was then read live on the internet at sunset. The whole performance took place over 1001 consecutive nights and explored how the internet can summon the creative power of writers all around the word to support a work of mourning.
